Pyongyang, North Korea-Kim Jong Un has lost his money to an unscrupulous Craigslist poster.
North Korean despot Kim Jong Un recently attempted to buy the 1994 Chicago Bulls championship basketball signed by the full team on Craigslist. Of course, the Houston Rockets won in 1994 so there was no 1994 Chicago Bulls winning NBA season game ball. But Kim, not the brightest light in the Korean sky, sent $389,245 to the con artist selling it on Craigslist. When he was told that the 1994 game ball was already sold but he could buy the 1995 ball (also non-existent) for only another $80,000, the reality-challenged dictator sent the money.
When a month went by with no basketball, Mr. Kim contacted Craigslist with his complaint. When he was told that Craigslist wasn't responsible for individual postings, Mr. Kim went ballistic and said, "Even though we do not have any nuclear weapons, we will commence bombing the U.S., home of Craigslist headquarters, in 48 hours unless this issue is resolved to the full satisfaction of the Korean government."
The U.S. Military had no comment. However, Kim's BFF Dennis Rodman was quoted as saying, "I'm tired of saving the nation's ass again and again. If I have to go over to Korea again and deal with Fat Boy one more time, there better be a Nobel Prize in it for me!"
